    I'm having consistent connection problems even with some serious drops on wifi. Makes the market unusable. Also the power control widget is blank. Don't know if anyone else if having this problem. Too bad I don't have the time to go back to the first beta release. I'm sure this will all be fixed up soon.

    None of those problems here... just the known mms bug, the lockscreen issue, and the settings.apk not working correctly. Other than that, all is well.
    ...Was surprised it didn't include the latest imoseyon tweaks, and I had to add the aosp carhome manually.

    All in all not bad for a beta!

    BEtA 3 just hit, seems like he's recommending to be on the Deodexed build of Gingerbread before flashing.

    EDit: My BAD>>>You do NoT have to be DEODEXED for Apex Beta3/ApexRC.

    Yeah, having a hard time figuring out the best way to get from the original Beta to Beta 3 without SBF, any ideas?

    You should be able to flash right over but the beta, if I'm not mistaken, was off the .591 build, if so then you'll have to flash up to .596 (easy to do)

    Only thing is the Radio is at .07...If I go right to Deox .596...will that cause a problem? Seems Fab is most concerned with the .12 baseband

    good point, flash the stock rooted .596, I don't think you need the deodexed, I didnt have it and I'm having no problems w/ Apex RC.

    you sure? everything i read says you have to be on radio .12 to flash .596, and beta is just .07

    Well the good news I knew what I was talking about, so it shows I'm learning all this stuff ... the bad news is I have never SBF'd before so guess I'm going to be doing research on that now.. Thanks got the avatar idea when I picked up my OG Droid

    Hey here is a thought, maybe someone can tell me if I am as smart as I think I am, rather than SBFing, since I have a perfectly working phone...perhaps I can just flash maderstock, and go that route...any ides?

    wouldnt the rooted "official" gb (.596) be ok for going right to this apex rom? just bootstrap recovery and apply this zip?

    Shouldn't be a problem, that is the way Fab is recommending, but it appears jumping on the first beta has left me stuck where I am unless I sbf

  21. bigsmoove's Avatar
    bummer. perhaps that sbf they published of the .596 might save a step or two. i have been pleased with all APEX builds and will probably do this today if work permits.

    I think if I do that I will lose root. So far as I can tell my steps from the original Beta look like this, maybe someone can confirm them for me

    Beta 1---SBF .340 Froyo---Zroot & Bootstrap D2---Both parts of the upgrade to .596 root---bootstrap D2 again---Apex RC1

    Only other thought is if I apply Maderstock 340 can I cut out all the SBF junk...

  23. bigsmoove's Avatar
    yeah you're right. i forgot about that rooted version of the .596. the steps are so easy these days, you just got to be careful you dont forget one. when i went the .596 root method, the filenames were so long i couldnt see the end of the filename to tell what was "part1" vs "part2" in the 'choose your SD to apply" step...thankfully they're in alphabetical order. i think next time i'll just rename to a shorter one. 1.zip 2.zip maybe. ha.

    curious to hear your results.

    Let you know when I have time to do all this...seems like it is going to take me awhile.... Hey Fab if your reading this, think you could just pull together a kernal and radio update?
    06-07-2011 08:00 AM
  25. bigsmoove's Avatar
    ok couldnt resist. downloaded and applied. seems the icons actually require a "press" vs a "touch" as the .596 rooted felt...perhaps due to no blur i wonder. something to get use to i guess.
